The joint leaderships of GNAT, NAGRAT and CCT-GH have asked the Ghana Education Service to as a matter of urgency distribute all the 280,000 laptops in their custody to their members before the 31st December 2021.
In a joint press conference held yesterday, the three union leaders disclosed that they are well-informed that GES is in possession of 280,000 pieces of laptops meant for teachers.
The president of NAGRAT, Angel Cabornu also noted that the distribution of the laptops to teachers in the various public senior schools is almost complete remaining basic schools.
He stated that GES decided to first distribute the laptops to teachers in the senior high schools so that they can have fair knowledge of how to distribute to teachers scattered in all the basic schools nationwide.
Speaking on the quality of the laptops, Mr. Angel Cabornu mentioned that teachers who have so far received the laptops are satisfied with the machine, adding that teachers are readily waiting to receive the laptops in good fate. However, he observed that those making negative comments about the laptops are those who have not yet received it.
The three teacher unions have also assured teachers that they will make sure everyone who has been deducted the laptop money of GHC 509 will receive his/laptop soon.
The long-awaited GNAT press conference was held yesterday and several issues were addressed by the three teacher unions. Top most topic of attraction was the One Teacher One Laptop Project which has so far generated so many controversies.
At the end of the 37-minute conference, these three unions created the impression that they are innocent, but rather it is GES who is to blame for any thievery or misinformation.
Aside that, they created a picture that the deal is to the teacher's own benefits and that all their efforts in the laptop contract meant well for their members. Teachers, the ball is now in your court to make your own judgments.
